For the second year in a row, we have enjoyed serving the wonderful families at the Ronald McDonald House- East, located in South St. Pete.  We teamed up with Shiny Happy Smiles Pediatric Dental office to provide lunch last Friday, and enjoyed seeing the lovely RMH staff again and visiting with families staying at this wonderful location.  We encourage everyone to learn about this fantastic organization in our community at https://rmhctampabay.org.  

We wish all of our patients and families a joyful Thanksgiving.  We are truly thankful to know you! 

Happy Thanksgiving! 

Sincerely, 

The Amley McEntire Team

Last Saturday night, Dr. McEntire was asked to "strut his stuff" on the cat walk for the Junior League of St. Petersburg's (JLSP)  "Cocktails and Couture" event.  This event raised money for the JLSP and the causes they support around the St. Pete community!  He was joined by several other St. Pete men and women who modeled fashions from local St. Pete boutiques.  Dr. McEntire was dressed in a look from Jackie Z.

Way to go Dr. McEntire!!!

A note from Dr. McEntire about Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month

September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness month. 

During my time at Auburn University, I had an opportunity to work with Camp Smile-A-Mile, a camp for kids whose lives were personally affected by cancer. Doctors and nurses came to camp so that even kids in active treatment could attend. Our campers were heroes who had been through rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, countless days in the hospital, and some of them were less than 7 years old. It was at Camp Smile-A-Mile that I began to hate cancer.

This week, various friends and family in the Tampa Bay Area are reminded of the same hatred. Cailin Canella, a swimmer at the Academy of the Holy Names, lost a year-long battle with osteosarcoma. She was a joy to be around, and this loss is sure to affect many. I'm hopeful that you'll all join us in showing support for Cailin and all of the other kids who are burdened with cancer. Please consider using one of the following links that we assure you support GREAT organizations fighting the good fight.

 

 

 

"Make Your Bed; Brush Your Teeth" A special blog post by Dr. McEntire

I am currently reading Admiral William Mcaven's Make Your Bed, and am inspired to say the least! It's interesting to consider that each day is a summation of decision points. We all have multiple decisions we make each day. Some days contain more decisions than others, and some days hold more important decisions than others. I think we'd all agree that making the "right" decisions would lead to a better day. 

Every morning we wake up to start the day's routine, and within that routine we can include some positive efforts that will set us up for success: make your bed before you leave the bedroom, and brush your teeth before you leave the house. Making the bed is an active decision to pursue order in your day, and your room will look mostly well-kept even if there are other things that need to be put away. Brushing your teeth is the first healthy decision you can make in your day. Choosing "order" and "health" will hopefully start us on a positive trend that will lead to a day of success. 

This summer, we hope that you're all resting and spending time with friends and family!

Success for our Salvation Army "Spring Cleaning" drive!

Thank you SO much to our patients and friends who donated to our "Spring Cleaning" drive benefiting the St. Petersburg Salvation Army.  The Salvation Army is such an important part of our community, and we were so happy to help out.  Dr. McEntire delivered the items to one of their wonderful representatives, Randi-lynn Farrell,  last week with his side-kick (and youngest daughter) Rosie. 

Again.. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for your donations and enthusiasm!!
